Akranes – the shape of the team and its analysis:

"Skagamenn" returned to Iceland's top division only last season after winning the second league. Their main objective is to consolidate their position in the top flight, despite being 18-time national champions. They exited the cup in the round of 16 last month, losing to Keflavik.

However, in the league, the newcomers have been collecting points quite effectively, with 13 points from eight matches, including four wins and four losses. They won their previous match away against Akureyri with a score of 3-2.

KR Reykjavik – the shape of the team and its analysis:

"The Western Empire" holds the record for the most first and second-place finishes in the local championship. However, in recent years, competitors have pushed them aside. In 2022, the giants finished only sixth.

It doesn't look like things will change drastically this season. The capital club has more losses than wins. They started with two victories but have since picked up only five points in the next seven rounds, mainly thanks to a 2-1 win away at Hafnarfjordur.
